Dear fellow tax hikers, this evening's story will be based on the various tweets from today's Board of Elections (BOE) meeting.
The vote fraud hearing for Roxanne Qualls supporter Randy Simes got started today, but the bulk of it has been delayed until next Monday. We desperately need this to go our way. If the BOE ruling goes against Simes, it would destroy our special efforts to recruit votes for Qualls from those living outside Cincinnati.
One facet to today's hearing that surprised many of us is the amount of lawyers involved in this seemingly simple case. Chicago resident Randy Simes had a lawyer. Parsons Brinckerhoff, Simes' employer, had a lawyer. The Voter Integrity Project, the group challenging Simes' Cincinnati voter registration, had a lawyer.
And even Travis Estell, the cute young man who let Simes use his home to establish "residency" and has been charged with no wrongdoing himself, had a lawyer. That lawyer is none other than Tabitha Hochscheid, the wife of the racist anti-Semite Craig Hochscheid. Hochscheid frequently blogs under the name "CincyCapell".
Here is a recent picture of Mrs. CincyCapell/Tabitha Hochscheid:
Hang a few candy canes on Tabitha and she could pass for a Christmas tree.
Tabby was in court to dispute the subpoena that demands emails between Estell and Simes. Tabby declared that Estell would not provide them. Well Tabs, you don't get to make that call, and any good attorney would know that. Tabitha suffered a quick defeat - the BOE lawyers will review the emails privately and pass along the relevant ones.
Things aren't looking good for Randy - and by extension, us and Qualls campaign. For example, Randy's September 26th payroll statement lists an Illinois address and shows he paid Illinois taxes - several weeks after he allegedly became a Cincinnati resident. We urge you to contact the Board of Elections and ask them to let the Simes thing slide, because Roxanne Qualls can't afford to lose any more votes.
